Stop me if you’ve heard this one before:
“We need a prototype to show our client or team HOW the application works…but it’s so clunky connecting all these different design tools and plugins together! I wish there was a faster, more reliable way of building desktop and mobile prototypes!
If you have, then Adobe XD might be just the thing you need. Adobe XD was built from the ground up to address the complex needs of today’s UX designers, with innovative tools that eliminate speedbumps and deliver breakthrough performance on everything from wireframes and high-fidelity designs to interactive prototypes.
